Pale golden straw color. Aromas of peach jam on toasted brioche, honeycrisp apple, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, and minerals with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish light-to-medium body and an effortless, stimulating, medium-length lemon curd, hints of candied ginger, and fondant finish with crunchy tannins and a suggestion of oak flavor. A crisp and friendly Brut sparkler that offers great bang for your buck.

Brut

Serve in a Champagne Flute
Brut is a term that defines dryness levels in sparkling wines; it is most famously used for Champagne, but it is a common term used around the world for most sparkers.

While Brut means "dry" for all intents and purposes, it can actually be off-dry or even lightly sweet. The definition of Brut for Champagne is between 0-12 grams of residual sugar, so Brut actually describes a range of sensations.

No matter how dry a Brut sparkling wine actually is in technical terms, it is generally dry enough to serve at the dinner table with most foods.
